What Helps Gout Pain and Pseudogout

Pseudogout, or CPPD, is a disease very similar to gout. Gout and CPPD are often confused due to their similarities in onset. The cause of CPPD is unknown and seems to effect both men and women equally.

  • Control of pain may require a mild narcotic such as codeine.
  • Recurrent attacks may be contolled by the use of an NSAID.

  • Gout and CPPD can be differentiated by specific testing and identification of the type of crystal. Idea



Differential Diagnosis: The differential diagnosis for this condition should include;- fracture gout osteoarthritis infection of the joint

Treatment of CPPD

The most significant consideration in the treatment of CPPD is controlling the frequency of attacks. Frequent attacks (more than one a year) will result in progressive erosion of the joint, leading to painful chronic arthritis. Isolated attacks (less that one a year) lead to minimal destruction of the joint. The frequency of CPPD attacks determines whether treatment is merely for each attack, or whether daily medication should be taken to lower levels of inflammation.



  • Symptoms: The symptoms of pseudogout are similar to gout showing an abrupt onset and significant pain.

We expect that approximately two-thirds of the Uric Acid to be removed from the body through the kidneys and urinary system.

Elevated levels of Purine present in the body at any given time, whether due to genetics or a high protein diet, may give rise to elevated amounts of Uric Acid in the blood stream.
